Sitting on the balcony watching the wildlife is a must. Friendly warm welcome made us feel comfortable with the close location to their property. Dunwich Heath for the walking and Minsmere. Thorpeness to Aldeburgh is a lovely walk. Couldn't ask for more from a short break.

It has all the comforts of home, including toys for the children The village had all the amenities we needed and there were nice pubs nearby serving lovely food. The location was was great for day trips out. Southwold is minutes away and there is something for everyone nearby. The mere at Thorpness is lovely for all the family. The leaflet rack was well stocked with lots of information and places to visit. We will definitely be coming back again.
